This is a great book, but if you have already purchased 'Home sweet home' by the same author, then please don't buy this. I made the mistake of thinking it was a completely different book and was disappointed to open it only to find I already had it, but with a different name.

The hardback is called 'Sew easy' and the paperback is called 'Home sweet home'.

I did feel a bit cheated by the publishers and wish they had not renamed it, but it is still a great book by a brilliant author and full of lovely tips and projects... I just have two copies of it now.

Format: Hardcover
A book of simple but stylish soft furnishing ideas and handy hints for the home, which will bring a retro feel to your home. Includes irresistibly simple ideas for everything from a frilled cotton cushion, a comfy denim bean bag and a summer patchwork duvet to a ribbon and rick-rack trimmed tablecloth and a roomy canvas beach bag. Clear explanations and simple illustrations to show you how.

Includes cleaning hints for windows and stains, and recipes for tapas, a cake and icecream! For a novice stitcher like me, the ideas Jane Cumberbatch has come up with are inspiring rather than intimidating.

I like Jane Cumberpatch's style but the projects in this book are uninteresting and amatuerish: the sort of things that pepper UK 'craft' magazines but are actually items that hardly anyone would want in their house. If you are serious about sewing, I doubt you will find anything to inspire here.

This is a very pretty book with cool photos, useful diagrams and unexpected bonuses, too: recipes for cakes and tapas to name but a few!
